We heard quarterback Ryan Tannehill creatively come up with a dozen or so ways on Thursday to say his left knee – the one that kept him from the playoff game last season and now bears a precautionary black brace – is swell, fine and perfect, so quit worrying.
Who's worrying? Tannehill and this Dolphins offense are going to be solid. Too many weapons not to be.
It is the other side of the scrimmage line where doubts about Miami reside. Defense is why the Vegas over/under on Fins wins this season is a mere 7 ½, an unequivocal slap of an insult to a team coming off its first 10-victory season in eight years.
For this reason, while all other media eyeballs were trained on Tannehill's every move Thursday, I was watching recent first-round draft pick Charles Harris, the defensive end out of Missouri who was on the practice field for the first time as a Dolphin.
Wednesday he signed a four-year, $10.9 million contract. The next day, he was out there starting to earn it.
